It seems almost ridiculous to consider this a milestone, but it would be impossible not to notice. Her marriage to Kanye West is the third time that Kim Kardashian has been married, following her infamous divorce from Kris Humphries only 72 days after their highly-publicized wedding. Her first marriage to Damon Thomas lasted three years, but that's nowhere near as well known as the saga of Kardashian and Humphries. After all, that marriage didn't come with a four-hour wedding special. It's official: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been married for 73 days, outlasting her last public marriage and making the world breathe a collective sigh of relief. When your track record ranges from as low as 72 days to as high as three years, it's a relief when signs start to point to Kimye having the staying power that we all suspected they could have.
Of course, the signs were all there to begin with. In the first place, Kim Kardashian became Kim Kardashian West which was a big step considering she never changed her name for Kris Humphries. In the second place, Kardashian and West already have North West, another step that Kardashian never took with Humphries. (Honestly, that's something of a relief not just because of the eventual divorce but because Kardashian has been complaining about her weight gain all over Instagram and I can't even imagine how much worse it would be if North West was her second child.) Despite all of the rumors that Kardashian and West were constantly on the verge of a divorce, the couple is still going strong.
So, in honor of the end of their trial period and the beginning of a marriage that will hopefully last for years, here are some of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's best photographs from their honeymoon phase.
